The Collections of Old Japanese Postcards in Republic of Slovenia

Chikako SHIGEMORI BUČAR

Abstract


During our research “East Asian collections in Slovenia”, old Japanese postcards were found in various institutions in today’s Republic of Slovenia. For most of these postcards we know the names of individual collectors and their backgrounds.

This paper presents 160 picture postcards, produced in Japan and some of them used for correspondence between 1899 and 1920. The photos on these postcards may be categorized into the following four: 1) ports, cities and tourist sights; 2) houses, gardens, clothes, hairstyles and customs; 3) particular objects, e.g. dolls, ships; 4) natural disasters. The period from the end of 19th century to the 1920s may be called “the period of picture postcards”, since postcards had the important role to convey information and news from far places such as Japan and East Asia.
